The Wii was a smashing success regardless, people assume that because no one understood the place of the Wii U that the Switch is also doomed. I have mixed views. The processing power of the Switch is only a little less than that of the original PS4 and it runs ARM now so its easy to port games.
I pretty much skipped that entire era my last console was a PS2. I'm getting back to that for Nostalgia purposes and the Breath of the Wild trailer looks amazing. It has those touches of Japanese artistry you expect from anime, which is one of my favorite art styles. For me it doesn't need 3D realism personally.
I'm a lot older now than what I was then. For me the Switch is just something to enjoy the nostalgia of great first party titles, if some good third party titles come along the way then that's a bonus. But, it has what I'm interested in already Bomberman R, Mario Kart 8, Odyssey, FIFA and NBA2K18, Street Fighter, to the point where anything on top of that is really a bonus such as Yooka-Layley.
That's 6 games, I've never owned a console with more than 8 games that I have played regularly.
